Spirit Animals #5: Bear

June 9, 2010

Please send your hopes toward ending the oil spill in the gulf. In some native cultures, the bear is a vessel on which one can project their pain, hurt, or whatever other negative obstacle they hold inside them. The bear is able to handle that weight for them and essentially recycle it. Thanks for reading.


a bristled brown mountain timeless dust
a grizzly bear directing the rivers rush
healing wounded creatures and trees
heavy and weighted against frost fragility
snarling mountains bellow out a winter wind
your mouth an assertive abyss for afflictions
we examine each other with rude intrigue
our drumbeat pulse unites us, the warrior creed
I know there are crimson claws within me
